A message from Gord – April 2, 2020

Posted on April 2, 2020

Dear Ward 4 residents,

I’m writing today to give you a further update on the City’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

City staff in the Emergency Operations Centre and all essential and critical services are working around-the-clock to respond to this crisis to keep us safe.

These are unprecedented times and I am continuing to receive multiple updates each day on the City’s response and I am committed to sharing this information with you through my social media channels and in email updates like this. I have included the latest important information from the City below.

Right now, I can’t express enough how important it is to stay home, practise physical distancing, work from home where possible and only go out for essentials. These actions, which many of you are already doing, will help to protect you but also your family, friends and all those who work in essential services.

As of this week, the City of Toronto opened four emergency licensed child centres for the children of eligible, essential and critical service workers. Toronto is the first municipality to open emergency child care centres that will operate, as the need demands, on a 24 hours per day, seven days per week basis to support critical, frontline workers. For details on eligibility and application, visit toronto.ca/home/covid-19/covid-19-social-support/covid-19-child-care-for-essential-workers .

Thank you for everything that you’re doing to help stop the spread and please continue to urge others to do the same.
